The following theorem on the circle group T is due to Norbert Wiener: If f∈L1(T) has non-negative Fourier coefficients and is square integrable on a neighbourhood of the identity, then f∈L2(T). This result has been extended to even exponents including p=∞, but shown to fail for all other p∈(1,∞]. All of this was extended further (appropriately formulated) well beyond locally compact abelian groups. In this paper we prove Wiener's theorem for even exponents for a large class of commutative hypergroups. In addition, we present examples of commutative hypergroups for which, in sharp contrast to the group case, Wiener's theorem holds for all exponents p∈[1,∞]. For these hypergroups and the Bessel-Kingman hypergroup with parameter 12 we characterise those locally integrable functions that are of positive type and square-integrable near the identity in terms of amalgam spaces.
